1952 Farmall H

This 1952 Farmall H tractor sold for $40,000.

Mecum Auctions’ 4th Annual Iowa Premier auction held Nov. 7-9, 2015, in Davenport, Iowa, produced some stunning results. The two top-selling tractors were a 1952 Farmall H, which sold for $40,000, and a 1969 Oliver 2150, also drawing a top bid of $40,000.

The 1952 Farmall H was purchased by John Schier in 1953. John was a bachelor who lived with his sister on the 80 acre family farm south of Stillman Valley. John used it to cultivate his corn that year, and the following year rented his ground to the neighbor, but continued to live there until his death.

The previous owner had John's first International H. He told John when you get ready to sell this one please give me the first chance. In 1976 John gave the previous owner the chance to buy it and he did. It had been used for light jobs around the farm until 1990 when it was purchased by the current owner.
